Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
Sabrina Basten is a visual artist based in Rotterdam and Berlin. She obtained a diploma from AKI Academy of Fine Arts in Enschede NL(2004).Basten has received several grants from the Dutch government and the Rotterdam Art Council to realize her projects. The artwork Blüte was commissioned as a permanent installation in the entrance hall of Laurens-Cadenza in Rotterdam(NL). Her works are part of private and public collections. Sabrina held artist residencies at: CFA in India(2003), Bookville in the United Kingdom(2005), Lokaal 01 in Belgium(2006), and Weise7 in Germany(2011). My work is about the explorations of underlying patterns and connections between scientific paradigms and seemingly random aspects of humanity and its relationships. Sometimes the work takes the form of physical investigation into materiality, at other times the questioning is more intellectual or philosophical. I create a stage in which the boundaries between viewer, author and the installation itself starts to blur. In a space beyond the ordinary, they have a chance to encounter their own associations, themselves and other visitors. They become and are an integral part of the artwork. To paraphrase Deleuze, I aim to achieve moments of deterritorialization, or an aspect of disorientation in order to orientate oneself a new. The environments become a platform for artist and viewer to get lost, get found and to explore a temporary environment through senses, intellect and spatial reckoning.
